This painting began as another figurative painting. It was based on a sort of dream/vision I had about the creative process, which involved a strange story regarding a muse and alligator babies that I fed by allowing them to suckle blood from my arms. Ok, never mind that part. But basically I converted those images into cultural quasi-religious symbols. My major aim has been to create color combinations and patterns which vibrate positively together as a unit. However as the idea for the painting is rooted in the figurative do not be surprised if the main shape reminds you of a bathtub.
